Broken Hydraulic line JD 710

Hello......I have a John Deere F710 front mower. While trying to jack it up and remove the blades it fell off the jack and caught one of the hyd. lines between the jack and frame. It mangled the line right where it goes thru the retaining nut. I think it pulled the flared end almost thru the nut. I'm not certain but it looks like the opposite end of this line is fastened onto a common plate with other lines and i don't see how to remove the whole line. Is it possble to splice a new end onto this line. Any ideas or help would be greatly aprecciated.........Thanks Perry

It is, if you have the right tools and parts. The tools though arent cheap at all. Its a crimp tool with diff attatchments and you use a impact gun to crimp the firrings on with..It costs about $700. Best thing to do, is either take it to a hydrolic shop or a JD dealer.
